Dark Star > Weirdness > Wharf Rat > St Stephen is ridiculous.

Jerry's voice is strong and everyone sounds amazing!

I prefer this AUD, as it keeps the Drums > Space sequence in tact following Dark Star. Keith & Donna '79 is a weird "lame duck" kind of era - it really is an extension of '78, as there is virtually no change in their sound until, obviously, Brent joined the band.

Set 1 here is pretty stale. Jerry's voice was slowly going hoarse here (he always seemed to have trouble in January) and he forgets quite a few of the words. Nothing here really gels - it just kind of mopes along....

...*except* that Music Never Stopped set closer - I feel like that sleeping rabbit in that Wii game, suddenly perking up and wanting to dance - they really just disco the *hell* out of this song. You can skip this entire first set but don't skip over the closer!

Set 2 is why you are here. Shakedown charges out with that dance-energy they went into halftime with; the triptych Miracle > Bertha > GL saw a lot of play in this era and they do it fine here.

The Dark Star through Space is, of course, very special - they add a lot of psychedelic jangle to the breakdown and make this one not just memorable for its setlist inclusion. Check out, too, the dynamics between Bobby and Jer on Wharf Rat's solo section, too.

Again - 1st set is a snoozer. 2nd from MNS is just fantastic, a good companion piece to your 2/3/79 set II.

This sounds amazing, (yes, a little analog hiss), and this show is brilliantly played. Bobby's guitar sounds great, everything is crisp, and from what I know, this is the last "Sweet Susie" Loser. Jerry fumbles thru the "Sweet Suzie" lyrics on the 1st time thru, but it's there. So, it's a well-played show that sounds really good (for a '79 aud). Thanks, Charlie. -Nick
